Emily Blunt's latest turn in chilling new release The Quiet Place is another sterling performance from the British actress. Written and co-starring Blunt's real-life husband John Krasinski, the film follows a family who must stay silent, communicating only through sign language, in order to protect themselves from a group of extra-terrestrial beings who seek out their victims through the medium of sound. Though it might sound a little too out of this world for some, the film has garnered rave reviews from critics.

Tracey Emin – I Want My Time With You
Famed for her controversial autobiographical works such as My Bed and Everyone I have Ever Slept With, it’s fair to say Royal Academician artist Tracey Emin is never one to do things by halves, and her latest artwork, I Want My Time With You is another fearless exhibit from the Turner Prize winner. Opening this weekend in celebration of the 150th anniversary of St Pancras International station, the installation stretches 20 metres across the famous Barlow Shed roof, and is the largest text piece she has ever created.
Opens 10 April
